About The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP)
The American Society for Investigative Pathology is an educational professional not-for-profit society dedicated to the discovery, advancement, and dissemination of basic and translational knowledge in experimental pathology and related disciplines. This is achieved by fostering investigation into the pathogenesis, classification, diagnosis, and manifestations of disease through meetings, publications, and educational activities. Investigative pathology is an integrative discipline that links the presentation of disease in the whole organism to its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms, using a variety of structural, functional, and genetic techniques and ultimately applies research findings to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. ASIP advocates for the practice of investigative pathology and fosters the professional career development and education of its members. For more information, please visit: www.asip.org.
